Well after months of waiting and diagnosing I got the motor put back together. Mahle ran a pretty thorough analysis on the pieces of piston and determined the builder did not seat a clip for one of the wrist pins all of the way. The builder obviously disagreed and blamed the tune. I think I got a bad tune and a not fully seated circlip.

Either way the builder sleeved the block with a darton sleeve, bought new pistons, gaskets, bearings and assembled it all from oil pan to lower intake, water pump to flywheel. Cost me $2200.

I should be back on the road in a couple of weeks. Any recommendations on a tuner? I was thinking maybe True Street in Mckinney.

True street does pretty good with these older mustangs. Sean tuned my old 95 with a 347 setup many years ago, and it ran fantastic! 1000x better then it did when hpp tuned it. It drove great but had a lot of idle surging and would die all the time with hpp tune. After Sean at tsm tuned it, it idled great, no surging, no bucking, no dying etc. tell them Toby sent you over and you need a discount!! Haha

You will not see 400+ rwhp on your truck 5.0 or a gt motor for that matter - in stock form. You will still have to deal with the possibility of getting screwed by a tuner, mechanic, or machine shop on any motor. Build what you like thereís plenty to debate on all of it.
